Later this year I'll be visiting southern France for an autumn vacation (holiday, if you prefer). I hate going places where I can't competently ask where I can piss without getting arrested, so, in an attempt to prove that some neurons still may be connected, I'm taking French lessons. A lovely lady comes by a couple of times a week to try to pound some learnin' into a solid block - but! I'm at least going to learn enough to get skinned in small French shops in their own language!
And this has what to do with music/videos? Well, when I was learning Spanish in another century I discovered that the most pleasant way to train one's ear is listening to music. I have defined musical tastes, so I immediately went to the past and sampled some French icons, starting with Charles Aznavour and Mireille Mathieu. God, they're good! I'm processing a 60-song album by her after a 40-song Aznavour collection.
It's undecided whether I'll ever learn much French, but I'm guaranteed some excellent listening.
